Everything you didn’t realize you wanted to know about me:
What is your blog about?
It’s an Indian beauty and lifestyle blog.
What’s your background?
I’m Indian. Well if you really want to get technical then 7/8 of me is from India and 1/8 from Burma. I’m also Punjabi. Oh and Canadian of course.
What is your foundation color:
The closest would be NC42 although it’s definitely too golden for me. NC43 would be the next best bet but it’s about a shade too dark. So basically there is no perfect MAC color for me (arghhh!). Better yet, here is my foundation routine.
Where do you live:
I live in sunny San Diego, California. I’m originally from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. It’s a suburb close to Toronto and I LOVED growing up there. Our lakefront is beautiful, the people are super nice and it’s been rated in the top 3 cities to live in Canada for the past few years. The only thing I don’t like is winter. I will never like winter. Like ever. Sorry not sorry. A few years ago I met my American husband during a trip out to San Diego and the rest is history 😉
Who are your favorite bloggers/youtubers:
I am so incredibly inspired by other bloggers. I love strong, driven, motivated women who go off the beaten path to follow their dreams. Nothing inspires me more. So much so that I have a series of interviews featuring these women. I feel like as women we need to support and cheer each other on! Other than beauty, my two fav blogs that I obsess over like every day- The Skinny Confidential and Simply Taralynn. Love these women!!
What are your 3 can’t leave home without makeup products:
MASCARA. Any mascara, I don’t really care, I just need my mascara.
In that order.
Do you do freelance makeup, if so can I hire you:
Yes! I do both hair and makeup. You can check out my rates here and drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you accept/get paid by companies to review their product?
Yes. BUT I ONLY POST HONEST REVIEWS. Sorry for shouting but I want to state that as clearly as possible. I will never lie to any of you about how I feel about a product. Don’t get me wrong, I can fall out of love with a product, just like the rest of us, but it takes a lot to get me to that point.
If you weren’t blogging about beauty & fashion, what would you blog about?
Travel. There is nothing on this earth that I love more than travel (maybe nachos). I’m fortunate that I am now at a place in my career that I can do that, actually, scratch that, I worked my butt off to get to the point where I can go anywhere in the world and take my work with me. Wouldn’t trade it for anything.
What’s your fav place in the world?
Paris…Because it’s Paris. Oh and Southern California.
Is Berar your real last name?
Sigh. Yes. Over 100 years ago it used to be spelt Brar but my great-grandfather decided that the way it sounds in Punjabi and the way it is spelt in English don’t really mesh so he put an “e” in there.
Is Deepa your real first name?
Yes. There are no prefixes or suffixes, it’s just Deepa. Dunno how that happened, but to be fair I do have cousins named Monique and Kelly and yes those are their real names too.
I’m a PR rep and would love to know how to get in touch with you?
Awesome! You can email me at info@deepaberarcom.
